Musical Comedy Duo
Musical satirists Jonny & the Baptists – real names Jonny Donahoe & Paddy Gervers – are among the hottest musical comedy acts on the UK scene, regularly appearing on TV, radio, at festivals and the country’s biggest comedy clubs. From silly songs to satirical anthems, their riotous live blend of comedy and rock gig has won adoring fans across the country.
Jonny & the Baptists have regularly featured on BBC Radio 4 shows including The Now Show, The Infinite Monkey Cage, and Sketchorama, as well as making a recent appearance on BBC’s Live at Television Centre. They topped the iTunes comedy chart with their single Farage, supported Mark Thomas on tour, and have appeared at major festivals from Latitude to Greenbelt.
The musical-activist-comedians returned to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019 with their latest show, Love Edinburgh & Hate Bastards, before embarking on a 33-date nationwide tour. This follows the success of their previous tours Stop UKIP (2014), Rock The Vote (2015), The End Is Nigh (2016) and Eat The Poor (2017) which played to sold-out venues all over the UK.
